Safe Return

Greetings All,
My brother TIO and I returned yesterday from our Slope Soaring adventure to Williston, ND. There were several reasons for making this trip, but the primary one was to fly on a slope that our youngest brother Freedom Flyer flew regularly several years ago. (One of the things you'll see in the pictures is the result of some major flooding last year. If you compare the previous entry pictures to the ones attached, you'll see how the flooding killed a LOT of the greenery on the Missouri River below the bluffs we were flying.)

This time out, the wind did not disappoint, and we got our sloping taste buds satisfied. (I will also say that we returned to Montana with a deeper appreciation for our flying at Table Top.) Our time in Williston brought to pass several events, such as my Coyote snapping off half a wing on a fast and furious dive and banking turn, the need for an ice-pack on my leg due to an unintentional wacking into the side of my leg, and other incidents that I won't post here Unfortunately, we had our trip cut a day short because of a huge storm that came through and dumped well over an inch of rain in a very short time. Consequently, we left Williston and drove south to Grassy Butte, ND to spend the evening with Freedom Flyer who is currently working there. An early morning departure got us home in the early afternoon, and now I'm trying to catch up and rest at the same time. Hope you enjoy the attached pix.
Blessings,
Arlen
